#hashtags: #Goodwood Festival #BMW #Gerry Judah

The traditional Goodwood Festival of Speed sculpture for the 2016 edition will homage the 100 years of existence of the BMW brand, with its three tips supporting a car each.

The Goodwood Festival of Speed central feature celebrates the century of existence of the BMW brand, with the design belonging to Gerry Judah, which envisioned three sweeping steel curves designed to invoke a feeling of speed and dynamism. Each of them is paying its respects to the BMW motorsport prowess, featuring a car mounted onto them. The trio includes the 328 Mille Miglia Roadster, the Le Mans-winning BMW V12 LMR, and the Gordon Murray-designed Brabham-BMW BT52.

With the German automaker being the featured brand of this year’s event, we can rest assured the grown is also choke full of different BMW models. If you’re among the lucky attendees you’ll be able to see anything from a 1965 1800 TI/SA and a 328 Touring Coupe which won the Mille Miglia in 1940. There’s also something for the two-wheel fans, as classic meets modern with a 1966 R50 S Kaczor, a 1976 R90S TT, and a WR750 Kompressor from 1929. The 2002 Hommage concept is also on display – coming fresh off its BMW-patroned Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este. And among the oddities you’ll also find a 1927 Klemm L25 aircraft which is powered by a BMW five-cylinder radial engine.
